ACH eCheck Payment Applications

The ACH Network supports a variety of payment applications from different vendors. An Originator initiating entries into the system will code the entries in a manner to indicate the type of payment, such as a debit or credit, and whether an entry is a corporate or consumer. The ACH application is recognized by a three digit code or an Standard Entry Class Code (SEC) code. This SEC code appears on the record format.
